I talk to myself, believing I can live without you.
I live on the lies believing that love would stay.
I beg and I plead before you, but you don't hear me.

He may change your world
And someday he may break your heart.
You deserve no better.
If you love him I will step aside.
I offer this to you,
So leave me as I love you still.
And if he don't keep your warm
You know I will.

Once we were one, now we are none.
I have to accept that.
I don't have the power to correct such wrongs.

He became your hero somehow,
I became your clown.
You deserve no better
But my love is here.
I offer this to you
So leave me as I love you still.
And if he don't take your heart
You know I will.

It's not very wise, not smart,
You say there's no doubt about it
If you decide you've got somebody else.
I won't look, I don't care
I can't say anymore about it,
But my love will go on as long as the river flows.

He will be your king someday.
He may let your down.
You deserve no better.
My love is real
And I offer it to you.
So leave me as I love you still.
And if he don't keep you warm,
You know I will

You're a terrific writer, Selah, you're poems are heartfelt and strike the reader in the depths of their souls..and you've touched mine.
I'm sorry about you're lost love...she's missing out on something good.


 I'm in love, but he
doesn't know it yet.

6 posted 2000-04-06 08:57 AM have such a wonderful talent! this poem is so gorgeous in the aspect that it is so real, heart wrenching and it comes from your heart. i was seriously near in tears...coz to be devoted to someone can be a blessing but being devoted can cause heartache and despair.
wonderful poem once again
